Speaking to FEMAIL in January last year, Tabitha remembered how her relationship with Fraser began, explaining: ‘I started working as a marketing director at Albert’s Private Members’ Club in 2016 where Fraser and I met.

‘It quickly became romantic but we kept very quiet as he was my boss. It was very on-off for a long time before we became official and moved in together in November 2017.

‘But moving in was probably too hasty at the time as this led to us breaking up. I was broken-hearted dived head first into filming for Made in Chelsea.’
